"Were the Yankees of the 70s and George Steinbrenner was paying all that money, the mets were in the toilet. Yeah. After having that magical run in 69 and 73, then it just went. After coming into being in 1962. And then the Yankees went south after Reggie leaves and Winfield becomes mister May and right in the thick of the my baseball people said Ken Phelps for Jay buhner era. The how he spyro error, the mets win the World Series in 86. And but they go into the best team money can buy spiral. And that was kind of the only time best team that money can buy when the mets were trying to spend give Bobby bonilla an annual annuity all the way to this day and passed. And then the will ponds come in and we all know that they became financially strapped in the Yankees or the Yankees. The Yankees and mets have never had the same spending power and desire at the same time for the same all time potentially great free agent. That's never happened. Metz weren't in on Reggie. They weren't in on Reggie. They weren't in on Winfield. They weren't on any of that. Interesting. Oh tani's free and the mets and the Yankees start spending together. Billy eppler. He's the key. Yeah, right. I'm telling you, they will have a seance. George Steinbrenner will come back from the dead and say over my dead body as this happening. And then he'll go back to the grave and Otani will be in Yankee Stadium. It's not happening. This is a new day. Okay. Let's put a pin in that one. Put a pin in that one, baby. This is great. Put a pin in that. Because George is gone and uncle Stevie's here and he wants his own type of legacy. They should absolutely have another episode of billions on that. Not too late. Let's take a break here overreaction Monday. Jerry Jones is also chimed in on why Jimmie Johnson's not on the Ring of Honor. You mean we almost made it through a whole show without a Dallas? That's right. That sniveling story when we return as well. Our friends at Callaway want to remind you, we've been talking about what their driver, their irons, their putters, and even now wedges around the greens, just a reminder, there's a golf ball you need to play with and it's the Callaway chrome soft family. There is just like the driver and the irons, the wedges and the putters. A version of it that fits your game to perfection. That is why Callaway has made everyone better by taking the chrome soft and giving you every type of performance that you can have by using the right version of chrome's jobs. I use the regular chrome soft. That's for the widest range of

"Has changed now because he is the brightest object in baseball. You know, he's a one of a kind, no one's ever done what he's done as a two way player. And you wonder if he's moved that beyond that part of his career. Where he is ready to be the headliner. I've wondered about the mets because Billy eppler was the most important person, the former general manager of the angels, to lure Otani. He had a developed a really great relationship with him to lure a tani to the angels. Well, Billy Apple has moved on to the mets who are now owned by the richest owner in baseball. And you would assume that when no tani becomes a free agent after the 2023 season, that Steve Cohen and the mets may take a run at him. You wonder about the Mariners. Who they signed each row in the past. If Otani wants to stay on the West Coast, that would be an interesting place. And of course the Dodgers, even though there would be a lot more attention in theory, media attention playing with the Dodgers, he'd be surrounded by Mookie betts and other star players. You wouldn't have to shoulder that entire burden. So it's going to be interesting to see what he decides how he begins to steer this process if he begins to steer this process and what already decides to do in terms of when to pull the plug. I don't know if the mets go and get him or he's interested in the mets George Steinbrenner might come back from the dead just to say over my dead body and then go back to the grave. Buster. I gotta tell you it's one of my great things that I'm really excited about. You and I have never seen in our lifetimes. That moment when the mets, it full superpower strength. And the Yankees at full superpower strength have gone after the same guy. It's almost like they politely have deferred to the other team in various moments in their respective histories, but at some point whether it's Otani, whether it's Soto and free agency, we are destined to have a full blown Metz versus Yankee showdown for a player. Heck, maybe it'll happen this winter for Aaron judge. Oh gosh, he's so awesome. And so locked in, buster. There's no question about that. And the couple minutes I have left with you here on the program. With all due respect to Soto and everyone else, we on this program talk so much about so many star players and baseball, nothing moves the needle like ohtani. Nothing. Nothing comes close to moving the needle like Otani. And I'm just wondering if his decision might be affected by trout's health, what's going on with trout? What is going on with him? Buster. So when the athletic trainer spoke to the reporters the other day and talked about this condition that he said that trout would have to manage, you know, it got mutual friends with trout. I didn't speak to him directly, but they were right away like, no, you know, that's not that serious. Like, yeah, it's a concern and he's going to have to get treatment. He got a shot last week and but the full expectation is that he's going to play again this year. And they assume he's going to play next year, the messaging I got back from the folks I talked to was this is not as big of a deal as that long-standing name of the condition that he has. We'll see. He's certainly he's over 30 now. You hope he continues, it's a fair question. And if you're ohtani, you're right, you're looking at the angels. They just can't put together enough pitching. They seem to step on themselves all the time. And now you've got the situation with trout. If you're oh tani, you're going to want a chance to win. That's what I've heard time and time again about him is that he just wants to win now. As he moves forward and if you look at how the angels have done in recent years, they would not be candidate number one for that. Last one for you, buster only. Every other year, it seems there could be, let's just say the cardinals from a few years ago. Team that's out of it or average, moribund, sleeping right around August 1st, today's date. And then in October it's like, wow, that was when things turned and they made a run and look how deep they're going into October. Which team do you think has the best chance to be that team this time around? Buster only. And you could include the 2019 nationals in that category last year. Below 500 is a trade deadline. I'm going to pick the Seattle Mariners who made that really aggressive trade for Luis Castillo the other day. Other teams are shocked how much they gave up. But this is a team that hasn't made the playoffs in 21 years. They have baseball's brightest rookie superstar and Julia Rodriguez. They now have the sort of rotation that you can win a short series with. I wouldn't be surprised if they do more before the trade deadline. They've been playing great that to me as a team to watch. Buster only, thanks so much, greatly appreciate it. Let's chat again soon. Look for more of my texts and calls. Thank you, sir. Enjoy tonight. Thanks, rich. You got a buster only part of Red Sox and Astros tonight on the worldwide leader right here on the rich eisen show. I follow him on Twitter. You should as well. The great buster only.

"As far as dealing with racism and being a champion. He became the first African American coach in any sport. Well, right? I mean, for two years, he was a player coach. John mccloud was actually hired by of all people, George Steinbrenner, in the American basketball league in 1961. John mccloud coached a treatment papers, and he ill fated AVL formed by apes sacristy, and a guy to hired him for the Cleveland pipers was George Steinbrenner. So Don MacLeod was the first, but that was a league that lasted a year and a half. And it was a challenge to the NBA that failed. But Russell became the first existing prominent major sports league black coach NFL, Major League Baseball. And I want to make sure that we set the record straight for John mccloud. Pioneer basketball history. And give George Steinbrenner credit, frankly, one of the, but when red tired Russ, it was the first time one of the major sports leagues. Right. Of any kind had hired a black person. And I didn't even hesitate. You know, it was a very obvious thing and a logical thing. And Russ and the first year out they don't win. And then they went to and Russ was the coach. I mean, it wasn't like red was pulling the strings. Trust me on that. No, no, no, no, no. It was Russell street and Russell Rea neck right next to you. Did he have to coach that? I mean, obviously you had a presence, but they had been together and it was sort of a Celtic way. Yeah, good veteran team. And what good enough in 67, that they weren't 68, as I said, I'll get Philly credit for kind of him being hurt, but you got veterans. How much that's coming into his prime. He's got such, he's got Nelly. He's got he's got Sam. He's got he doesn't have KC. He's got siggy. You know, he's got some players. And he's got himself. He's still playing. He saw himself. And let me tell you something. In 1969, after they finished fourth and east in a 14 Eastern Conference, and if championship team was Baltimore bullets who had a great season and they went up and they beat the 76ers and that was okay. Then they beat the next added to pusher and had to push them and read and Bradley and Barnett and he played. He afraid of him. 36 years old. Yeah, played me to beat him. And get there. That was an expected. That was, I mean, remember to see finished fourth.

"Verdugo just in a home run, get in the cart. It's like I did put my three year old down the produce aisle. Every team does it. It's not fun. Every tiny celery. The league in home runs. And long hair. What is wrong with you? They look like they're having fun with me. Your team lives in the 70s. That's true. We're the Yankees. I couldn't even play for you right now. I wouldn't be on this team. I don't agree with that whole business of shit. Are you supporting every day? That's like George Steinbrenner railing at the hippies, the long hairs. You know, I mean, I support it because I love the Yankees and this year has been phenomenal in Aaron judge is not going anywhere. The Yankees will pay him all of the dollars and give him all of the years that will not be a Freddy Freeman issue here. If he wants to stay and you're like, he's out, he's out. He looks like a guy who loves it where he is. Speaking of guys who are sneaky old, Aaron judge. I know that. 30. So what? 8 years. What? 8 36, 37, 38. I want each. It is not going to age well. May, from our current lips to the television streaming radio God's ears, we're on the air 8 years from now. Okay? And we're having this conversation. Let's put a pin in it. He's hitting two O one. Oh my God. Stop it. Okay. This guy. But he's still got 45 bombs. This guy, right over there, that guy. That's your man's. I'll take it. Sold. What are we doing? Double or nothing on the pickleball bet. I'm gonna be heavier. Just don't pay the money and expect to get it. Yankee pride on it. That's the best thing. That's the best thing rich because if you're going to exchange funds, he's not going to pay. That's another thing. So you might as well just have the draft, what's today's date again? It's June 20 then. I think today was in fact, it is the two month mark of the day Kenny Pickett was not drafted in the top 5 of the draft. If I'm not mistaken, it was April 29th. Draft night in Las Vegas, Nevada, April 29th. Because the Saturday was made first. I remember that. We're about to have this. Two months? That's delinquent. Like a checks that you might not be able to cash if it's sent from a certain business 60 days. My lights might go off in the crib. You know what I mean? And he wants to bet me money.

I just want to see Ronnie in a puffy shirt is really, I mean, I think that's in a music video someday. Somewhere back along the way. Yeah, yeah, you can see that. It's pretty easy to see that. So which Seinfeld character would you be? I mean, that's pretty odd. That's pretty. I feel like I would have to be George just in terms of sort of the perpetual short fuse just you say one thing and I might go off a little bit. Also, also kind of hopefully a key cog, the one who's always driving ideas like, what are we gonna do? What are we gonna do? Yeah, I think I'm that guy. Hopefully a little more chill, but that leaning strongly that direction. George has worked in publishing, and you've worked in publishing. I mean, there's a lot of parallels actually. You both like baseball. Yeah. Yeah, I think both of us hate George Steinbrenner. Yeah, you both a church Steinbrenner. I think there's a lot of overlap. It's accurate. Baby, I think I'm for you. It's going to be a, it could be slightly offensive because you're not Kramer. I think you are, I think you're sorry and again, don't take offense. I think you're whoever the lead woman character in the show. Elaine. Yeah, I pay no offense taken in this day and age that's a compliment. Okay. She has also had to say that.

"I'm going to play just sign me and then he went out and hit 49 homers and won the MVP for the cops. Now, if your house 9 runner, the owner of the Yankees on one hand, you're excited about the team is playing and you get a lot of interest, a lot of eyeballs in this team. It's a fun team to watch. And in the distance though, Tim, I see these storm clouds gathering for Hal Steinbrenner because this is developing into an unbelievable litmus test that now has a different context that Steve because Steve Cohen owns the mets, right? We're going to get to free agency in the fall because Aaron judge having turned down that Yankees offer. It's not like he's going to in mid season say, hey, can we talk again and he'll reach free agency and we continues to play this well. He's going to get an offers of over $300 million, and if your Steinbrenner after what Steve Cohen's done with the mets, man there's going to be some special and new type of pressure on him. Right. I don't think there's any doubt any time of course when the mets and Yankees are competing for anything New York postseason, whatever it is, but when you're talking about a premier player like this, this would open up a whole new word to free agency. If Steve Cohen would get involved for Aaron judge after the season, which you're right, you know he would have to look at that and then it would be up to the anxious to say we're not letting this guy go, period and we can't let him go across town. And Tim, I think there would be pressure, even if the mets don't get involved, like Steve Cohen might say, look, we got to pay other people. We're not going to focus on him, but he's, you know, he now, what Colin has done for the mets is a little bit like when George Steinbrenner owned the Yankees where, you know what? We're going to go after the best player. And that now becomes the standard in New York. And so even if the mets don't go after them, say it's the Giants that do with the Dodgers or some other big market team, there's going to be pressure on Steinbrenner because of what Cohen's done with the meds. Fascinating scenario and I can wait till the off season believe me buster, but that will be one of the great stories of next off season. All right, what'd you think of what Brian cashman said in response to Astra's owner Jim crane? Well, I'm not surprised that Brian cashman said what he said and the way he said it because at least according to the proof.

"Buys of all time. Nobody ever talks about that, but I just want to mention that because I remember when George Steinbrenner bought the ages from CBS, for $10 million. Again, if my memory is right, if I'm off a little bit, I'm off a little bit. $10 million. One of the greatest buys of all time, it's worth, well, who knows what the Yankees are worth, but it's worth bands. And then yeah, Jerry Jones commented by the Dallas Cowboys. Again, I don't know. Yeah, Trump changed. Trump changed. I know, and I'm not being disrespectful to people. That's a lot of money. I get it. But Trump changed compared to what it's worth now, which is billions of dollars. Who knows what the town's cowboys? I look, it's the most expensive NFL franchise. I look at you. I put you in that group. Right up there with that purchase of that island called Manhattan. That was a pretty goodbye too. Some years ago. When they bought the Manhattan island there, which is now in New York called New York City. That was pretty good. I think that was about $24. That might have been the best of all time. As far as getting value for your dollar. But do you ever think about that? I guess you and the potatoes when you're together, you must sometimes say, wow, we did pretty freaking good. $2 million to finish. Yeah, we definitely do. And you're right. You get on, teddy. I mean, Steinbrenner bought the Yankees for $8.7 million. There it is. 8.7 million. And you know, God knows what that team would go for today anywhere between three and 5 billion. Right? Yeah. And Jerry Jones, same thing. I think he bought it for like $6.92 million. They're the most, you know, the most expensive NFL franchise on the planet right now. So yeah, I mean, we're up there with some of those great. Sports business stories and it's obviously awesome. Can I tell you a funny story, a little story? It was obviously, I don't think you're aware of it. And why would you be? It didn't turn out to be anything important. Nobody listened to my advice. So I'm not afraid to say that. But when I was probably somewhere around 20 years ago, and I was working at ESPN fights, quantified. We would do some fights in Vegas, obviously. Does station casinos, which was owned by your partners? The data brothers. And I got a call. And I think it was Lorenzo. I'm not a 100%. Definitely. Yeah. And I got a call, Dana. I get a phone call. Hey, this is Lorenzo potato. And I didn't know who he was. Quite frankly. He says, I'm involved with the UFC. Have you seen it? And I had seen a little bit of it with the crisis. And he said, I would like some view up to it, teddy. I would like you to give me some suggestions, how you think we could make this point a little more entertaining. Fan friendly. I actually wrote them down in facts to them. That was the one thing I could do. In fact, I got rid of a flip phone about two years ago. And I still do facts. Once a while doing a broadcast doing a podcast for my house, the fax machine to go off. And people actually because I don't go on the Internet. So my son is saying that people are like, teddy's really old school, a freaking fax machine went off in the middle of his podcast. So he said, can you put a list together of some of your suggestions? So I did. In fact, it overturned. I remember one of them. I don't remember the others. One was to have a shot clock. That was my brilliant idea. Like the NBA. That was shot clock where the fighters would be forced within that time zone of the shot clock to stand, not go to the floor, stand and strike 12 punches. And because I thought that I just thought that the stuff on the floor back then I just wasn't as developed as educated as smart as patient as I hopefully am now. And I thought the stuff on the floor as great as the graces were, was could be boring. So I said, you got to have a shot clock. Well, I look for that shot clock for a couple of years, and I gave up. I never saw the shot clock. But I just wanted to tell you, I just wanted to share that story with you. I'm sure that I'm glad you guys did okay without my advice. I guess that's what I'm trying to say. But that's the type of person Lorenzo is, you know, Lorenzo wants to hear all these people's opinions, you know, you know, people that he respects. So we obviously both have a lot of respect for you. Well, I appreciate that. I appreciate it very much. My last question will be this one. When you obviously there was a lot of important decisions you had to make early on. To me, I don't know if it was directly you, but obviously it comes under your realm. What are the very important decisions was when you decide to brilliant, because you had to have credibility, you had that authority, you had to have somebody in charge you had to have a connection to civilization quite frankly. Because a lot of people thought the sport was too barbaric. And you had to have rules. And I thought your decision Dana at the time of the UFC's decision by figure was, again, I figured would fall under you..

"Baseball made it so that the yankees needed to bat more on their prospects than they could go out and get those proven stars to help them win championship after championship. Well it they. They didn't make it absolute they. They instituted a penalty which the yankees ignored for fifteen years and then decided to abide by and play within the quote rules. They're not hard rules. They're soft rules right. But you at the top of the show said if the dodgers of the model franchise the dodgers have said fuck it to the luxury tax for the past eight years. Not all of them. They recently reset tax. so they did they. I forget off the top of my head. I'll i'll try to do some research on denied. I obviously believe you is just okay. I thought they've been the highest payroll team a baseball for many years. I think they have been but they at one point reset that got under the tax so that they didn't have to pay the same penalty. You're the highest rate penalty for everything. So even they play. You know kinda within i guarantee you. You have three or four years from now they're gonna go back in slash payroll to do it again because at like some point it becomes like i think what the yankees said at least is we. Don't wanna be paying other teams especially other teams in our division free money essentially to get better when we can't like a it hurts them because they're paying other teams be because those other teams are getting money. They're locking up their stars. So there's not as many stars available on the market and there's there's all these domino fax of what the soft tax does that rule. The soft luxury tax does to stop the yankees from being like. We want my trout. We're going get mike trout and we're gonna pay him however much money it takes. Get angels can't compete. There's no chance like that just doesn't exist in today's world but back in the nineties of mike trout existed. Mike trout would have been yankee at some point like they would have or even in the early two thousands they would have been like whatever will will down the line will deal with whatever the repercussions are. But now the i mean. They saw like the money that they they were given away for. All those years the raise went. I mean part of it was the rays. Were picking number one overall for ten straight years out of the expansion but they ended up going to the world series in two thousand and eight and a lot of the money that they were getting from the yankees. They used to sign longoria to a long term deal. And it's like yankee killer. And so i think that's the thing with all of this like there's no absolute right answer for how you should go about it. But if you're going to go about it one way. I think you need to stick with it longer than like george steinbrenner type of mentality. Where like every time something goes wrong. You need a switch it like as if you're just going back and forth all the time that's worse i i completely agree with you. Because that didn't work for george steinbrenner until he was out of baseball frank little while and then they stuck with it and part of that was because they were winning so he didn't change things up because they were winning every. There's a lot of people who believe he would fire. Joe torre if they got balanced in the ninety six world series like. Yeah so so. Who actually knows. But i guess for for this conversation i really am. And we might never know where we're not going to know until after the season when there is a book written about it or something like that. But like i would love to know what what changed within because this look like a walking dead team like. They looked uninterested every night. Boone his even hillock his post game. Press conference says. He wasn't his usually always optimistic. Self he was still a little bit like still optimistic. But it wasn't over the top optimistic and the players looked non-competitive half the nights. Like you talk about your time is your most valuable resource. Yeah there were some nights. I dreaded seven o'clock. 'cause like i have to watch this like i know exactly what's going to happen and so it wasn't fun like i would love to know. Maybe you can speak to dysfunctional organizations or organizations that have sort of shifted gears in the middle of something Because something maybe was going wrong or they were. They recognized their leading down the wrong path. How do you make changes. And how does it. How does a switch seemingly flip overnight It's that's the million dollar question right and my belief is because the culture has largely stayed intact over the course of the past twenty. Five years like yeah. They've had some ups and downs and things that address in the book in things. If i write your the next ten years we're going to be addressing some things that we talked about in this conversation. It's not a perfect science and it's not a perfect art either. But i think the fact that the yankees continued to get players from other organizations who want to perform and want to play in new york and then they have that they messed out with that mentality of you know. They come up through the captain's camp they have this crash course on they meet with derek jeter. They meet with. Andy pettitte they. Now they meet with c c sabathia. Like what it takes to win like we come in with this winter's mentality like to look at all their their minor league teams right now and the success that they're having like there is built in. Dna it's not the george steinbrenner derek. Jeter dna where they like expect to win the world series every year but there is still building dna that says like we expect to compete and we expect to do well and so like professional athletes are just freaks and they're awesome from a physical standpoint people like you and i and if it had to do with cove it and some of the restrictions and especially this year with all the people that have gone on the covert i l. I don't know that played a little bit part into if they were sleepwalking. A lot of those games. That's that's how it felt and again. I don't even know how much boone is responsible for this turnaround. So hard from the outside for us like say he either did or didn't have an impact on this culture. None of us could save for sure. Leave right yeah. It's changed on so many levels though like like we talked about the the the play style change. It's the play style changes different. The players themselves are the but but it's the it's the from our view through the television. It's the it's the The attitude seems to have changed. And maybe that's just proud of winning. It's like you win. You're you're you're more confident or is it. Like something else has changed internally. I know i really curious to know to how much boone maybe had. Because i do. I wonder like boone. Actually what third fourth generation mlb ear. He knows baseball so like nobody. Nobody who's worth their time will tell you that. Aaron boone is complete moron like some of the twitter people. I just don't buy that. I've called them a. I know i and i and i've heard like at the end of the day. Like when you really think about it. Like is aaron boone. A manager that has has been terrible but my problem with boone is not yet he's been baseball has entire life so even if even by osmosis he knows more about baseball than your times one hundred for but but it's like there's the these in game decisions like leaving jonathan isaac on the mound at fenway park where he clearly could not get an out and you had guys in the bullpen warming up behind him..

How do you get famous for firing people. I know how far he's really out of his fucking razi. Did like i mean you give a guy like eleven games. That'd be like now you're done. I mean just and how many times can fire and hire the same fucking guy. Yeah you know. I should hire. Don't say billy but now fans weren't happy because of how yogi berra was fired. You don't fire guys sixteen games fucking season. That's crazy. there's one hundred sixty two fucking game. Also they were like. How many times is billy going to get hired people. People are disgusted with george runs a team and for the first time when billy was announced it was just a quick ovation and also for the verse time and booing that season. They're in a race to win the division. And it's like this is like ten days of maybe the worst ten days in yankee history. So they have a bad series against the top team and then georgia's up in the press box the next game and he starts reading the stats of several yankees from that series. That didn't do well reading where his play in the press. Box all the press..

"That's great city. Use the extra money what got spoiled by ninety late nine. Earthen two thousand merle. That's exactly what it is. Because that's what i was gonna say. Most inky spreads now were fans when they were dominant. When there was no one was gonna touch and now. They're not that team anymore. Haven't been several years trying to get back to it. But with george steinbrenner without 'em in control you're not gonna get that i'm team and he he may still be the owner but he doesn't run it like used to out at yeah. He passed family though right. It's a family still running the families team. Yeah it's big state. It's not the yankees that steinbrenner manufactured into the biggest best. Most expensive or team. There was yes not that anymore. Now what a lot of people don't remember that those teams were full alike mercer news from other tea's like roses and the owner lay real invented. Making people will say that it was basketball and baseball or football. That started like making the super team. No baseball in the yankees and steinbrenner invented that report. Where even at bane. He was building cheaper teams back in the early nineties. You see the reason why people don't connect it to steinbrenner in the same thing is because it's the players building instead of the owners. The owners can build super team. Everybody's fine with it but the second the players are like no we want decide. Because it's who you wanna play with since the ones carry that focus in that way the nba players just took it from the owners to themselves. That's what they get. Rob was one of the talk about k. If you could go ahead and put the parental advisory warning up because this is gonna be alert going the owner of the diamondbacks. Ken hendricks this wrinkly asked nut sack four zone attorney general after dive the lost the diamondbacks took the record for consecutive losses losses in mlb. History tweeted out that if kendrick wasn't going to make the steps make the changes necessary to bring the team to being a competitor. Then you need to sell the team for the benefit offense okay. This is a former ex attorney. General for the state of arizona currently works four hours or and at that point worked for a law firm. That also happens you have. The diamondbacks is one of their clients. For general counsel. Ken kendrick sent him an email telling him that it was out of line for him to say and that if you know that he wasn't going to like it when they see each other in person next first off issued seventy six his old ask probably can't even move fast enough to make punch with your contact with the punches. It actually affects that clear. I second the diamondbacks in be so he he joined the team in its inception in ninety five has been part owner at least since then took over general owners in two thousand and four k. They have had to national division. Titles that that went past. You know it's actually went to the end the they they've won the west by tom's not since two thousand eleven They've only had two times. They actually went to the s. And the one one world series currently right que. They have an absolutely abysmal record. They started a young may i. You're fifty and thirteen. They're now at at first time game. Zero thirty one in thirty and seventy home. He's right to get criticized yet. And if you're gonna have known as a business owner getting called out on twitter sell the company. Go get a bakery shop. Because you're not you're not the public doesn't want that as an owner especially in the public singer dot. Guess what you're gonna take some flack robert kraft's take slack. He also gives him jobs. But that doesn't count this cool. Everybody's i forgive it but can doesn't doesn't have doesn't seem to understand that the culture of tea and starts from the owner and works. Its way down the hud family and what they do in kansas city and the chiefs is a prime example of how you build a culture in. Yep and what's what. Ken hendricks is is doing with this. Because it's been found out public that he sent this email now all of a sudden. Also this guy tweet if it doesn't work at that offer many more they're saying if not related but it's it's very clear it's very clearly what happened and so you have this nut sack that thinks because he's a business owner. The owner of the diner bax worst team in baseball the worst team in baseball tracking to the worst team in baseball history after jut one that record literally four years ago when they took a hundred law season the diamondbacks may maybe pass one hundred losses before they get out of august. It was once again. You one or two her final record actual probably break that can kendra keep talking about how you shouldn't be criticized publicly for running your team into the ground He needs to be criticized because fans in phoenix deserve better. What title they won the world series in basically sold off everybody. Yeah like this randy. Johnson would to the yankees luis kansallis went to the dodgers. He went to the dodgers schilling went.

And they said you guys got a promoted social media wise because it's digital this was an offshoot of digital and now everybody was all excited about all this and now we're feeling the pressure and we have nothing to do with it because the shipping is just all cockpit.

"I were in there were literally at you know at six. Am there would be this smell of bacon coming from the microwave in the kitchen. And it was the The two girls. Who were his producers diane diana and diana and her sister and i can't remember what her sister's name was but it was diana and they were microwaving up g gordon liddy bacon every morning remembering. It's it smelled up the entire The entire offices and studios. It wasn't a bad smell. And and there was the occasional conversation with g. Gordon liddy in the kitchen and he couldn't have been more pleasant could have been a nicer guy. Could not have been a nicer guy. Like one of the most fearsome individualistic over read about in american history. And he was just saw. And i i think you and i would like occasionally start. Firing some watergate related questions at him. And he's i good question. Good question kevin. I gotta get back to the studio by the way. The bacon smell much better than the time when mike. Kelly decided he'd up seafood chowder. Oh god and everyone just yelled like. Don't ever do this again. Man you just ruin the entire radio station. Didn't liddy gist. I did just pass away. It was just like two months ago. Right yeah it was very recent and and you know we talked about on antonio show and it was is that we had this weird opportunity. Interact with them. Antonio's said listen. He was a lovely guy. He was lovely. He could not have been nicer and it was. It was a bizarre chapter in my broadcast history. Sort of have interactions with this guy. But again you know you never know who who. You're going to run into this kind of career. And he was just a. Yeah and you know when we did move to rockville. We didn't want to move to rockville. That place in silver spring was away from everybody else incorporate we basically had our own set up there. It was so easy to get in and out of now. Rockville ended up being great. Too but I remember tony's resistance to rockville. And i'm like it's gonna be fine By the way the other thing about mark to Not only was was he. Great as nigel and i very much do remember as you were creating this character in those early days and you know sort of the debates that you were having about you know what it was going to be what his name was going to be and how much you should do. It and i'll i remember is. Just be encouraging. I'm like it's phenomenal. You just gotta you just gotta do it. And and mark is it has been A stand up comic Some of you know that in some of you seen him and he's great but the other thing that i wanted to say to you and this is so true while mark was definitely A in acquired taste for adults and really again. The reason being mark is one of these people. And i have several friends that are this way that they just don't wanna waste any time with people that they don't feel like they should waste time with that. That is partly you and your personality which is fine I remember those early days saying basically. Fuck him You know. I don't i don't really care. But and then somehow we ended up becoming friends but what mark was phenomenal doing is he was great with young people. And all of the interns that came through nine eighty over the years including by the way my son and a lot of sons and daughters of friends of mine remember we had basically the sheehan interns for about three straight summers always great Mark could not have been better with young people and still to this day. There are friends of my son who will ask house mark doing And and because you are great with young people in you really. I don't think it was You certainly didn't get paid Any more for for doing it but for all intents and purposes hugh her the managing the intern program at least those that were in during our portion of the day. Well it was. It was always. It's always fun to shape a young mind in that and show them. Hey this is the right way to do things you know. This is you know. Let me get your mind working right about how you can cover a show and how you prepare for show and you know i. It's great to see the eagerness and the anticipation from from the kids. Always a great thrill for me and you always brought it. We didn't always have great kids. You know couple that were were not real interested in the internship. No and i remember very specifically. I'm not gonna name names a year where it was december seventh and i asked these two interns. What's the significance of that day. Neither one of them got it very angry. You brought through always drift we. We hit him with a lot of dates like The significance of of july fourteenth. Does anybody have any idea what the significant and they wouldn't even have any clue Anyway feeling a lot of our listeners. Don't understand the significance of that data either but that may be a trip I making This summer for a few days really back to old pal which my wife loves a lot. And i said can we just go somewhere and i can be on the beach and play golf. No we have to go. You know where we can see museums and cathedrals At i don't know why. I'm past that point of doing out on vacation. I'm not interested in that. As much as i and i wasn't never i was sort of interest i was the guy that wasn't interested in that i would get interested when i got to the museum row and i was like oh that was really cool but i would prefer on vacation to play golf or beach. Yeah you want to recharge the batteries from do either. But i was. I've never been to france and i love. I mean there's so many things that you and the vice president vice-president apparently which she apparently has not been to europe which i found is a surprise. I've been to england once. But i've never guess france and you're from england. I well technically. I am from england. Yes from birmingham. I think but yeah no. Every time i watch the french open over roland garros. And i'm like man i gotta get over there and see i got. You've been to see wimbledon. I'm if you've been to see rolling. And no i've seen i've seen the venue but i've never been there for the actual open itself by the way is a quick aside because i don't wanna forget this because you'll be able to win a way in on this as well. Tommy and i were in this big argument yesterday on the podcast. He's like the french opens the equivalent of the pga. No it's not it's not it is you know maybe third but for for europeans and a lot of the players it's second behind wimbledon and maybe even first for the klay quarters but it is a. It's a big time turnover. But but yeah these are things we've talked about so many times you have to get over to the. That's where you have to go Mark is definitely a historian on many fronts. I mean you were a european history. Major right Well classics classical civilization major. Okay let's split study all european history. I mean that's i've always had a passion for it and the more i studied the for the further back i would go now. I'm into ancient egypt's oh boy fascinated with i got a whole egypt's and drip. I'm trying to plan as well all right. Well i'm going to have to get up to snuff on that and then we can have a conversation about that I do before we get to your podcast. And what you're doing with the usda working with tony the years like is there a show or shows that stand out more than any others over the years. You know what there is one show. I recall in particular. Well does in a couple of moments first of all tony. Tony's unscripted opens on big days. When something big would happen you know i i. And i'm thinking specifically of when george steinbrenner passed and we were doing the show from his beach house. And i think it just happened and i said who do you want me to call on this..

Pakistan funds fact or opinion

"There's a half of our country right now that's living in a air quotes, reality that doesn't exist. Not kidding. This isn't a comic book. It's not a joke. It's a real problem. We have a Country of three constitutional Republic of 330 million people, plus And in order to make serious decisions about serious things. Just go down the list taxes, school health care, abortion guns, the Constitution, civil liberties, whatever that may be, in order to make serious decisions seriously. People like the citizens of the Constitutional Republic largely are outside of the radical left rape. We have to be able to make decisions. And in order to reach decisions, we should agree on a collective set of facts, not opinions. Okay, If you think we should support the government of Pakistan, more or less is an opinion. However, the amount of money say dish using this example in foreign policy, because it's an easy one. However, the amount of money we give to the government of Pakistan is a fact that is not an opinion. Now. I get it for the listening audience. You're like, Okay, that makes sense, Stan. But to the radical left, they don't seem to understand the difference between the two. You can say to you How? Listen, I don't think we should support. You know Pakistan with this amount of money, But the amount is a fact you agreeing with the amount we should give is an opinion. So how is it that we have half of America or close to it? That hated Donald Trump can't stand conservatives. How is it that they've come to exist in come to exist in reality where they don't have a grasp of what a fact is anymore? Folks, it's happening right now. Now we played this yesterday and bringing me not to pile on Brian Stelter, but he it's any easy target the pile, of course of CNN, but he has a show called Unreliable sources reliable. So when you get to him on CNN, and he was just the opening segment we covered yesterday, 11 seconds off Where Brian Stelter hilariously it's CNN says it's US conservatives in the listening on each other. That where the part where the problem we live in an alternate reality and thank God there's a media to set it straight. Check this out. You said the state of American Democracy is well, it's even worse than you think. So how should the reality based press cover an alternative reality? GOP? Right, And that's not a joke. He actually said that this is the same guy again who promoted the collusion hoax. The Russian bounty hoax. The China was a the Chinese, you know, coronavirus that emanated from China was it had to be naturally current couldn't have been man made. I mean, all these hoaxes were promoted by CNN, MSNBC and networks like Brian Stelter resides on now. They were all proven false. So how is it that they live in a reality? That's not real. And how is it that they're just quote discovering things that both you and I and the listening audience knew the entire time the conservatives out there. How does this alternate reality? Remember Bizarro Superman World's gonna come up a lot. I was a big comic book fan as a kid member Bizarro Superman. Everything was upside down backwards. Bizarro Superman was super ugly. How is it that the modern liberal lives in Bizarro Superman land? How is that? How was it that they live in The George Costanza Seinfeld episode. Remember that episode when Costanza does everything backwards and imagines and magically works out for him? This is the Seinfeld episode, like a stance that does everything backwards. Costanza. Stelter hadn't even done that, but it doesn't work out for them ever. He curses out George Steinbrenner and he gets fired, not a promotion. How is it that they've come to live in this alternate reality? Well, let's go to group one. First that contributes to this alternate reality they live in and why they believe things that aren't true. And why believing these things, Ladies and gentlemen, is getting people killed. This is not a joke. People are dying. Because of a reality liberals live in that does not exist. It's fake.

"george steinbrenner" Discussed on Westward

"So arbok has brown call Harrison and offers him the ice capades for a week if they pass on Russell. And with their top pick, the Rochester rose would draft a player by the name of shugo green. Out of duquesne, the Celtics then scooped up Russell and is a cherry on top, they also get Casey Jones in the second round. In one singular draft, red hour backs Celtics would acquire three future Hall of Famers, creating a dynasty, the likes of which the NBA would never see. Including 8 consecutive NBA championships. The first of which would be against the Minneapolis Lakers, and their rookie phenom. Elgin Baylor. And then one player on a particular team that was just we could not do very much with it. And that was entirely Russell Russell. Russell was also just unbelievable because Russell was the best defensive player you ever find. I mean, very difficult, but in the summer of 1960, Elgin Baylor and the Lakers would add a player who would help turn that ten years of hell pain into a furious decade long struggle that would not only rest basketball supremacy from the east coast stronghold of the Boston Celtics, but would sow the seeds of a bitter coastal rivalry that still exists today. The 1960 NBA draft was arguably the richest draft in league history. Four Hall of Famers in the first ten picks. And one of those picks was a lanky sharpshooter from the sticks of West Virginia. When I first came into lady, I wasn't even sure I was good enough to play, but, you know, I could run and jump like crazy. I had a very big vertical and that's before they even started to pay attention to stuff like that. And then extremely long arms and it was always really funny to me that they would put that I was 6 feet two and when I actually over 6 four and with a 40 inch sleeve length it makes you a lot bigger and you know if the physical part of it caught up with a mental part of it and that was the most difficult transition for me, the mental part of it had to feel confidence and the confidence to God were you got from playing against these people. West would be the Lakers first pick in Los Angeles. And the number two overall behind Cincinnati's Oscar Robertson. But signing the all American from West Virginia would prove difficult. As another Ohio area team, the ADL's Cleveland pipers, also had their eyes on west. The pipers were owned by a brash and brilliant young businessman, who was educated at MIT, and entered the world of sports franchises against his father's wishes. His name was George Steinbrenner. My dad had a fight trying to get Jerry West. And Steinbrenner was offering Jerry a chance to play at almost the same level as he would play in the NBA and he didn't have a pot to piss in as you would expect from a guy who just gets out of West Virginia in that era. So George wanted to see me and I visited with him at that point in time, I think all young kids, if you're any good, in particularly if you had higher aspiration, when somebody talking about something had been around for a while, but not forever, the NBA. That was always kind of a dream of mine because I'd watched some of the great great players at played in Ed era, and also I felt that if I were going to do something, the most important thing to be the most competitive person I could be was to play against better players. Not only did Steinbrenner offer west NBA money. He also offered him something most NBA players of that era needed during the off season. A job. He was really pressing me pretty hard. About doing this. His father was in the shipbuilding business and I'm going to be an insurance salesman. Again, coming from West Virginia, you know, I can't imagine me selling in a piece of candy, much less than insurance pollen to someone. As Steinbrenner pushed Jerry West, Laker owner bob short pulled, even hiring his former college coach, Fred shouse, to take over the team. But ultimately, it was west's drive. That made the decision. The money had nothing to do with it. I just wanted to play against it. What I felt was the best competition, and obviously I think I made the right decision. The kid who grew up in the foothills of the Allegheny mountains, not far from places with names like gunstock knob, was now moving to Los Angeles. The home of Beverly Hills, and Hollywood. You know, I hadn't traveled hardly any at all when I was a kid. I would say we had no means of transportation. So I was kind of shut in in terms of expanding the knowledge I had about other cities and the way that people conducted themselves and other cities you compared to very, really rule, small place that I grew up in. And it was a complete learning experience. First time I came out here and I was kind of all struck. I never forget we stayed at the old ambassador to hotel, and Wilshire boulevard, and that's where Robert Kennedy got killed. I was 20 one. They took us to the nightclub, the coconut grove, the nightclub, these old hillbillies
